On Wednesday may 6th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst,we are excited to be welcoming Kimberly Hess to Natures Talk Show. Kimberly is the director for Lakeside Nature Center 5 and half years now.
Lakeside Nature Center has been in existence since 1966 as a nature center with animal displays, and environmental programming. Today we are located in a fantastic building designed for children of all ages to learn and explore. We are the only Center of its kind in MO combining Conservation, educational programming, about 70 display animals, and Missouri’s largest full native species wildlife rehab center.
We started taking in injured, sick and orphaned wildlife for wildlife rehab about 35 years ago. Last year we had a very busy rehab year and took in over 2800 animals. We take in only native Mo animals, and of the 2800 131 were birds of prey.
We are chatting with game, animation and comic book writer Christy Marx.
She has written for classic animation series like GI Joe, Spider-Man and the His Amazing Friends & Jem and the Holograms, also written for comic books like Birds of Prey & Amethyst: Sword Of Sorcery, and has written for a number of video games and TV shows. She is also the author of the book Writing for Animation, Comics and Games.
We discuss how she became involved in writing, about her various projects, her thoughts on the upcoming Jem live-action film, tips for writers, and much more.
Study: BFFs May Have Similar DNA Belinda Luscombe @luscombeland July 15, 2014
Really close friends might be as genetically similar as fourth cousins
Next time someone says “You would really like my friend, she’s just like you,” try to refrain from giving her the side eye. It turns out she might have some science to back her up. According to a new study from Yale University and the University of California at San Diego, good friends are often genetically similar, and can share as much as 1% of the same gene variants. In genetic terms, that’s a lot. As close as, say, fourth cousins.
“This gives us a deeper accounting of the origins of friendship,” says Nicholas Christakis, professor of sociology, evolutionary biology, and medicine at Yale, who co-authored the study with James Fowler, professor of medical genetics and political science at UC San Diego. “Not only do we form ties with people superficially like ourselves, we form ties with people who are like us on a deep genetic level. They’re like our kin, though they’re not.”
The study found that, oddly, close friends are often genetically similar in their sense of smell. But it also concluded that friendship may play a role in evolution. The genes that were shared by friends saw the most “evolutionary activity”, or have evolved the fastest over the past 30,000 years. Whether the friendship or the genetic similarity came first is up for debate. Do we seek out genetically similar friends or do our friendships and mating affect what genes get passed on
“Human beings are one of the few species who form long-term, non-reproductive relationships with other members of our species,” says Fowler.

Ep.33 - Exposing the Deadly Tricks Intimidators Use to Attract Their Prey
Call-in #: (646) 668-8630
Intimidation is intentional behavior that "would cause a person of ordinary sensibilities" fear of injury or harm. Intimidation may be employed consciously or unconsciously, and a percentage of people who employ it consciously may do so as the result of selfishly rationalized notions of its appropriation, utility or self-empowerment.
Intimidators are ones who tease, threaten or hurt smaller or weaker individuals through the practice of intimidation.
On this week’s episode, join Princess Fumi and Her Southern Warrior Sisters as they breakdown how Intimidators trick and attract their prey. We will also seek to answer "daring" questions surrounding its existence in our daily living:
What Is The #1 Tool Indimidators Use To Attract Their Prey?
How Do Intimidators Seek Out Their Prey?
What Role Does Fear Play?
Are Intimidators Deceptive?
Can You Be Spiritually Intimidated?
And lots more....
Be sure to join us!

The Arizona Cardinals got what they needed on Sunday Night Football. They got a signature win against the two-time defending NFC champs in Seattle, defeating them 39-32 on Sunday Night Football. The win gives the Cardinals a three-game lead in the division with seven games to go and drops the Seahawks to 4-5, which puts them along with five other teams with the same record, two games back of the final wold card spot.
In the newest All-Cardinals show, hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox talk about the significance of the win and what it means to the team. Jess speaks of how this win was the result of other games and what they learned, and they both talk about minimum expectations for the rest of the season and what their ceiling could be.
They go over the good and the not so good in the win as well, talking about the play of Carson Palmer, Michael Floyd and others.
GIve the show a listen and head over to Revenge of the Birds for more great Cardinals content.
The Arizona Cardinals were on the big stage in Week 7, playing host to the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. They defeated the now 1-6 Ravens 26-18 in a game that should have been that close. A blocked punt and a couple of bad decisions while trying to run the clock out led to the Ravens coming within a pay of perhaps tying the score late in the game.
But the Cardinals got the win, finally pulling out a close game and "finishing one," which was the theme of the win. Hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox discuss the win and whether or not the Cardinals really finished the game or not. They discuss the players who stood out and the plays that stood out and looked ahead on the schedule to the team's next opponent -- the Cleveland Brown.
Arizona has the Browns game and then will get their bye week at the mid point of the season.
Make sure you listen to the show and then head on over to Revenge of the Birds for more great Cardinals talk.
After the bye week, the Arizona Cardinals now enter the second half of the season 6-2 with a two-game lead in the NFC West. After a week off of the show, hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox look back and grade the first half of the season -- how did each position group and side of the ball do? With how the Cardinals have played, it's hard to give them low marks.
Who are the team's offensive and defensive MVPs? Both the hosts weugh in.
Then they talk about the remaining schedule and how crucial the next four games are. If Arizona can somehow win all four, they will have put away the division and also grabbed national attention as a favorite to come out of the NFC.
With the Arizona Cardinals and Baltimore Ravens set to play one another on Monday Night Football, we have to preview the show, right? Naturally. So this episode is actually about the Ravens. Host Jess Root brings on Matthew Stevens, lead editor for Baltimore Beatdown, the SB Nation Baltimore Ravens site, to talk about the Ravens and their tough start to the season.
We find out the Ravens had huge expectations, with aspirations of competing for the Super Bowl. Then things fell apart with key injuries.
He also tells us that quarterback Joe Flacco is not elite (gasp), but he is really good. And strangely enough, with one of the best running backs in the league, a top 10 QB, a great run-stopping defense and a bunch of sacks, they can't win. But their close games are because they do things well.
Stevens tells us how the Ravens can win and how they can lose.
Make sure to have a listen and to head to Revenge of the Birds for more Cardinals coverage.
The Arizona Cardinals lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday and did so losing to Landry Jones, Pittsburgh's third string quarterback. Carson Palmer threw two interceptions and missed a wide open John Brown in the end zone. The Cards could only score one touchdown in four red zone trips.
After the loss, hosts Jess and Seth talk about the different issues and wonder how in the world the Cardinals lost that game. They were dominating the first half. They talk QB play, offensive line play, the lack of focus and discuss the notion of the Cardinals beating themselves.
Enjoy the show and if you want to discuss it more, head on over the Revenge of the Birds.
